, subsequent roads, transit and water investments helped fuel our economy and tie the nation together. more recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has secured here in washington, the gap in the highway trust fund has been growing and conditions of our roads, bridges and transit systems have been deteriorating. this puts america at a competitive disadvantage, complicates the movement of goods and people and contributes to congestion and pollution. at the same time, the needs grow, the resources are in significant decline. the gas tax has not been increased since t

a floundering economy. there is one area that can help break the logjam, not solve all our problems, certainly, but help us significantly along the way. congress should address the critical needs of our nation's infrastructure deficit. roads, bridges, transit systems are all increasingly at risk. we are facing an inadequate state of repair, construction of new facilities are on hold and we are losing ground in meeting our own needs, let alone the challenges of global competition. yet, this challenge is an opportunity for some potential progress. we know what to do to meet this challenge. we can write a new transportation bill that will meet today's needs. it just needs more money. there is a vast coalition that supports additional resources for infrastructure. the so-called special interests that are so often at odds are remarkably aligned when it comes time to recognize and fix this problem. business, labor, professional groups, local government, environmentalists, truckers, bicyclists all agree. the paralysis that surrounds questions of raising taxes does not necessarily need to apply in thi

with stakeholders from all areas of our economy and with the administration and the courts to ensure an open, deliberative thoughtful process, we held several hearings and issued two public discussion drafts in may and september of this year which led to the formal introduction of the innovation act in october. i believe that it takes the necessary steps to address abusive patent litigation. abusive patent litigation is a drag on our economy. everyone from independent inventors to startups to mid and large-sized businesses face this constant threat. the tens of billions of dollars spent on settlements and litigation expenses associated with abusive patent suits represent truly wasted capital. wasted capital that could have been used to create new jobs, fund r&d and create new innovations and technologies that promote the progress of science and useful arts. and that's what innovation is really about, isn't it? if you're able to create something, invent something new and unique, then you should be allowed to sell your product, grow your business, hire more workers and live the american dream.
